West Weber contains the West Weber Elementary School, headed by Mike Geilmann. The Weber River flows nearby and a bridge was built in 1903 over the river.
A minor accident occurred near West Weber on September 17, 1931 on the 8300 Ms. (20S) Southern Pacific, caused by an emergency application of air. Conductor C.A. Peterson was thrown against the cupola stand, injuring his left shoulder, and brakeman P.L. Burnette was thrown from the cupola to the floor.
The eastern area of West Weber was known for some time as Wilson. John Staker and Sbenezer Wiggins reportedly raised a crop of grain here in 1853. The land at West Weber was reported in 1903 to have a reputation as one of the poorest soils between Salt Lake City and Ogden. However, beets are grown in the area, made possible by boring artesian wells for irrigation, aided by the presence of nitrates, as thereby valuable plant food is added to the soil. Archibald McFarland had originally dug a canal in West Weber in 1859 from one of the sloughs bordering the Weber River for irrigation purposes. The earlier settlers spent about $2500 to irrigate ten small farms in the area in 1860–61. In 1903, studies showed that beets having a purity average of 81.3 were raised on soil containing 1880 pounds of alkali within the surface acre-foot, and when the content of alkali was lowered to 376 pounds, the beet purity went up to 84.9.
